Aerial acrobats cavorted among the steel girders overhead. Clowns, trained seals and bareback riders disported themselves on the floor where ice hockey players are wont to glide. Children's shrill cries of amazement and delight mingled with robust laughter of adults. Washington had its first circus performance of the season and the city’s initial indoor circus produc tion last night as Frank Wirth’s three-ring company opened a week’s program under auspices of the Chil dren’s Hospital. The spirit of spring that the circus brought to the Capital’s "mid-win ter” April was welcomed joyously by the customers. But Capt. Romane Proske, who does his stunt in a cage with eight bengal tigers, lacked en thusiasm. Doesn’t Like Spring. "This spring,” he said. "It is not so good.” “Why not?” an admirer asked. “It brings love to two of my cats and takes their minds off their work.” “I didn’t notice anything except that a couple of the tigers seemed surly and roared loudly at times, especially when you walked toward the other.” “That’s it,” explained Capt. Proske. “Sahib and Remagani are jealous even of me. They do their parts all right once their attention is obtained. But love is tough com petition for a task master.” Few in the crowd, however, no ticed any appreciable hesitancy in the tigers’ movements, directed al most entirely by voice, with the whip and the blank pistol seldom being called into use. Favorites Hard to Pick. Favorites were hard to pick. Poodles Hannoford, riding come dian, showed some of the antics that won him motion picture re nown, with other members of the Hannoford equestrial family round ing out the evening's most riotious act. Capt. John Tiebor’s fin-clapping, horn-tooting seal lion and hula dancing seals barked and slithered their way to acclaim. The Great Noval Troupe, the El tons and the Great Neiss Troupe drew oh’s and ah’s with musical pre cision maneuvers close to the metal “big top.” Senorita Miacahua on the tight rope and the Dobas Troupe on the teeterboard won approval with their grace and agility. Strolling calmly or pedalling bi- i cycles on the high wire, the Eagles 1 and Eaglette ended the program with an appropriate note, inspiring awe for the circus showman’s dar ing. Other Attractions. There were, of course, performing elephants, interludes featuring clowns and trained dogs, feat-of strength specialists, tableau per formers and all the remainder that goes to make up a circus. Rain kept away many who had purchased tickets for District night, which began the series of shows that Children’s Haspital officials hope will bring funds to meet an antici pated $20,000 deficit this year. Matinees begin at 3 o'clock this afternocffi and- this evening's “gala night” crowd is expected to include Mrs.''Franklin D. Roosevelt and many members of the diplomatic corps and high-ranking Govern ment officials.

Y., April 16.— District Attorney William Deckel man will ask the Sullivan County grand Jury In June for “several in dictments’' in the death of Hyman Yuran, victim of Brooklyn’s murder syndicate, whose body was recov ered yesterday. The long-missing New York City dress manufacturer’s body was un earthed from a lime-filled pit near Loch Sheldrake. Mr. Deckelman said it had been buried in July, 1938, after Yuran had been murdered allegedly at the behest of Louis (Lepke) Buchalter, industrial rack eteer. The slaying, he added, was to prevent Yuran from testifying as a rackets witness for Manhattan District Attorney Thomas E. Dewey. Discovery of the body came after Brooklyn District Attorney William ODwyer, whose investigation un earthed the murder-for-cash syndi cate, arrived from New York City with Sholem Bernstein, 29, object of a month’s Nation-wide search un til his surrender yesterday in Kings County Court. _ _ADVERTISEMENT.
